[New Post] Grateful and Guilty

Leave it to Ruth at Ruth Hentrick’s Photography, to leave the orples confused, feeling both grateful and guilty, rather cannibalistic, if you will.  We will need to write her a ‘thank you note’ for her generosity in sharing her snack with Olivia and Oscar.  They aren’t quite sure whether eating that apple is appropriate, or not. I guess so. When you start out as a fruit, I would say eating other varieties would be debatable.

While these two are busy thanking Ruth, we can visit the neighbors and see what they’re up to. Drop me a line if you’d like to join in the fun and participate in our Orple Adventures.

{New Post] The Orples Get Stuck

The orples stopped by to say hello to Ute in her blog Ute Smile. Ute has such a ‘happy’ blog, and if you’ve not been there you might to stop by and say hello.  Pay no attention to her lazy cat, unless you think you can help Oscar find reprieve. I am hoping Olivia will  have already gotten Oscar out of his jam by the time the rest of us get there.

It appears Ute's smart cat is only pretending to be asleep, hoping for a belly scratch.

While Olivia tries to wake the kitty up, lets head on out and see what the rest of our neighbors are up to as we visit the neighborhood. :)

[New Post] Bloggers inspiring other bloggers

The orples and I are exhausted from inspiring other bloggers.  They were going to sit this one out, but being good little orples, decided instead to take a break.  Thanks to Uncle Spike, they have a place to sit and rest on this visit.

While they are resting, please feel free to stroll through Orpleville and see what they’ve been up to in their adventures,  including our fellow bloggers, using their material to travel the world through.  Feel free to come along.

[New Post] Cousin It

Who needs a cousin it when you have orples running around? And to add to that scenario, check this out: Izzy grows trumpet trees on her blog , ‘isadoraartandphotography’.  It’s a good thing, too, because those trumpets look pretty heavy. These two are obviously natural musicians. I guess when you’re orples, once you’ve transformed from oranges into mobile little characters, nothing is impossible.

While they play their tunes, please feel free to check out the neighborhood. :) If you would like to be included in our adventures, leave me a comment, and let me know. You can pursue previous postings for the details. Happy blogging, everyone. :)

We missed you, Simba

Ever since Olivia and Oscar saw Sophia’s dog, they haven’t left me alone. So we’ve circled back to Africa just so the orples can visit her cute little companion. It looks like Simba likes to have his ears scratched.

Have you ever seen a spoiled dog? Well now you have, I'm sure.

It seems the orples always leave us hanging in the end to entertain ourselves. We may as well visit the neighborhood and see who else is up to what, while we wait for these two to play with Simba.

[New Post] A Pop of Color

For today’s Photography 101 theme from Novermber 16—A pop of color, this background is perfect!

Colline’s daughter drew a lovely little street scene, which the orples couldn’t resist. They love cruising through those black and white settings since they show up so well against the neutral background.

Olivia and Oscar love strolling down the street, admiring the scenery.

While these two browse through Colline’s blog, you can check out the rest of the neighborhood. If you’d like to add your name to our list of blogs to explore, please feel free to drop me a line and let me know.

Olivia’s Dream Comes True

We stopped by to see Ren, again, and wouldn’t you know, she’s got a shelf packed with books. Talk about  happy little orples. Ever since the orples learned to read (Book 3 in the orple series), she’s been a learning machine. While Oscar finishes reading Brides, my trio revolving around the Sanderson family saga, Olivia is going to explore Ren’s collection of reading materials.

There is no such thing as too many book when you are a curious orple.

Seeings how we’ve temporarily lost the orple’s attention, we may as well stroll through the neighborhood and see what our neighbors are up to.
